This former duplex for coal miners was built in 1938 and has been upgraded to provide our guests with the modern comforts of home. Our Cozy Cabin is a fully furnished 2 bedroom, 1 bath log cabin home located on Onarga Avenue in Paonia, Colorado.
In its current incarnation, it is a tastefully decorated and cheery one family house. Wood floors, colorfully painted walls, a fabulous tiled bathroom, a shaded three-season sitting porch and a fully-fenced backyard with full size picnic table and gas grill, are just some of the features that will make your stay at Our Cozy Cabin relaxing and enjoyable.
Our Cozy Cabin is located within two blocks of Downtown Paonia's diverse selection of cafes, restaurants and independently-owned shops. It's superb location allows you to walk to the library, post office, banks, grocery and hardware stores, movie theater, art gallery, and public radio station. Elms, Maples and Cottonwoods line Onarga Avenue, making it a shady neighborhood oasis for your stay in the North Fork Valley.
While Our Cozy Cabin does not have air conditioning it is very well insulated and stays cool all summer long with the help of shade trees and misting fans.
We do not provide cable TV or any TV channels. In lieu of this we have an entertainment center (see amenities) with an extensive movie library. We are located only two blocks from the local movie theater and news programs are available by tuning into our locally-run public radio station KVNF (90.9FM).
We hope you will think of "Our Cozy Cabin" as your 'Your Cozy Cabin' during your visit to the beautiful North Fork Valley.
We're Cliff and Ruth Baacke, retired college administrator (Cliff) and librarian (Ruth). We now live in Washington state, although we previously have spent many years in New York and Maryland. We love to travel and with our chocolate lab Gracie, enjoy hiking and other outdoor activities. We are avid readers.
Our grandson and his mom (our daughter) and dad live in Paonia. We bought Our Cozy Cabin because we wanted a little get-away just blocks from them for our increasingly frequent visits. We now love Paonia as much as they do. It is a special little town in a beautiful location with lots of friendly folks.
We love walking with Gracie around town, to the parks, and of course to our grandson's house! Evenings at Revolution Brewery or The Flying Fork are always highlights of our visits. The new library is a very welcoming place. We have never been bored in Paonia!
